This really isn’t a bock, but more of an amber. I would drink it ahead of Michelob Amberbock, which also isn’t really a bock. But that’s saying next to nothing.

Copper color...malty aroma...very sweet tasting almost like a flat soda pop...very easy to drink...I know several people that this is "the only dark beer" they’ll drink...I hate my friends...

Copper color, light caramel malt aroma and taste, light body, light weak finish.

This is an OK beer and I don’t mind drinking it, but it is just a step above the cheap american lagers out there. I would say this barely crosses the gap between a beer you drink to get drunk and a beer you drink to enjoy.

Lacks aroma, but decent body and nice caramel malted flavor. While this would be far from my first choice in beer, I really like Shiner Bock and drink it semi-regularly.

Pours a copper with a nice red hue to it. The head is small and fizzy. No real aroma and the flavor is a carmel malt. Nothing really to go out and find.

frankR (144) - Davis, California, USA - JUL 24, 2004
Thin, light caramel malts and some earhy tones. Nothing spectacular. Not bad compared to macros.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Good red amber color with a thin head on it. The aroma is a caramel malt smell with something earthy in there as well. The flavor is rather smooth and creamy, not overly sweet, but there is a good caramel taste. The palate is mostly smooth until the ending bite, which isn’t that substantial. Not the best beer, but a well balanced bock.

Bottle. Pours dark amber, slightly cloudy with a thin tan head that laces well. Wheat and mild yeastiness predominates in the nose. Mild hops character. Taste is very clean with some flavorful hops at the end, along with a caramel flavor, but overall a little thin. Sweet finish and pleasant, slightly oily mouthfeel. One of my favorite inexpensive beers.

IslandHaole (1207) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - JUL 9, 2004
A clear deep Amber with a foamy, off-white head. Very mild sweet scent. Feels like a macro lager & tastes slightly better than one. Not what I had hopes for.
